From Hal Wegner:
A few weeks ago Dave Kappos was involved in a webinar with Jon Dudas which provides some perspectives on the new Director’s views. It is available at http://www.foley.com/news/event_detail.aspx?eventid=2779. The webinar itself is available at http://www.foley.com/multimedia/multimedia_detail.aspx?multimediaid=58221724.
The May 8, 2009 webinar focuses on patent reform; technology issues; and reexamination.
A final version of the new Patent Case Management Judicial Guide is in print. It is also freely available on SSRN.
